Forum: GratefulDead Subject: BEST OLD AUDs (1968-1971)

Cliff has made no secret of his disdain for audience recordings, however having ripped through the majority of crisp soundboards from this era, Cliff must eventually turn to the better quality AUD's in his search for new Jams!

Admittedly, Cliff is not that knowledgeable when it comes to audience recordings. Can anyone hip Cliff to some more superior AUDs from 1969-1971?

These are the few AUDs that appear regularly in Cliffs rotation...


3/29/68 Carousel Ballroom

Morning Dew, Lovelight, Cryptical -> Other One -> Cryptical -> New Potato Caboose -> Born Cross Eyed (cut)

Source: AUD (Vernon)
Sound: B+/A-

Yes deadn73, in spite of the vocal mix, this is certainly tremendous, however Cliff has never been completely convinced that 5/3/69 is truly an audience recording...

Altough I have touted 5/3/69 many times as a remarkable "audience" recording, I see I am not the only one who is suspicious of the origins of this tape.

Ah smi2les, thank you for suggesting this very fine SOUNDBOARD recording, which may not be a top ten for 1968, but surely a top fifteen!

You have to give smi2les props folks, the dude IS consistent...

Cliff thanks so much for the recommendation of the 3/21/70 its very nice.

But as a twenty year bus member I'm a little embarrassed, what is the story of the Seven? I'm of coarse familiar with the Eleven but Seven is a whole different planet so to speak. Is it a musical reference and is it one they played very often back then?

Thank you for the excellent list wineland, and the March 1968 shows are indeed amazing, and worthy of a future thread!

Thanks for hipping Cliff to:

4/15/69 - The Music Box - Omaha, NE

The Dark Star is dynamite and contains a brief Main Ten Jam...

I can't take the credit for compiling the list. I found it on a blog a while back and archived it. Take a look at the full list (see attachment).

Hey WL: I think that may qualify (8-6-71); one of mine, and one of Phil's (on his "Phil Zone" CD!)...

Well... I was gonna recommend 2-5-69, but the aud seems to be missing. Guess you'll just have to suffer through the soundboard if you're really interested.
